Fayette County explains school test changes

New changes to Georgia’s College and Career Ready Performance Index tests for students were explained to the Fayette County Board of Education on Aug. 3 by Terry Oatts, assistant superintendent of student achievement.

The CCRPI, which uses various metrics to measure student achievement, is being streamlined into five components: content mastery, progress, closing gaps, readiness and (for high schoolers) graduation rates. The number of performance indicators measured will be cut roughly in half, and improvement targets will be customized for each school and district.

The changes take effect this school year.
